The chapter also provides readers with the discussions of key theoretical frameworks and methodologies employed throughout the book. It is emphasised that this book investigates and focuses on an epistemological inquiry into how cross-cultural contact inflects the ways of representing the contours of Japan's queer culture. The author finishes the chapter by providing an overview of the structure of the rest of the book, as well as concise summaries of the following chapters.
